Here are four reasons why the Dallas Cowboys will win the Super Bowl this season:
Let’s not beat around the bush here. You got a busy day ahead of you.
After the 2015 season, many fans were distraught about the state of their Dallas Cowboys. Coming off a 4-12 season and knowing the team had an injury-prone, aging quarterback in Tony Romo - nobody was sure where the franchise was heading.
All that changed over one simple weekend when the Cowboys selected Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott in the 2016 NFL Draft. Some will say the Cowboys got lucky there and certainly they did. Sure, so much work went in to the evaluation of these two players and the Cowboys front office deserve the credit for turning their cards in, but Dallas isn’t picking fourth overall without a struggling 2015 season. Who knows if the team even invests in a quarterback that early in the draft if Romo had a healthy season. Whether it’s apparent or not, that broken collar bone was a blessing in disguise.
What the Cowboys have now is amazing. These young stars are the two players that will touch the ball the most (well, besides Travis Frederick obviously). It’s hard to imagine that two guys who weren’t even on the team a little over a year ago will have so much influence over the success of the Dallas Cowboys. The great news is that these guys are very talented.
Despite being a rookie, Elliott completely changed how defenses dealt with the Cowboys.
He was their focus. The rookie running back has such a large assortment of skills and could beat you in so many ways. Whether it’s the toughness to finish runs or the speed to break a big one, defenses were forced to allocate resources to stop him. Teams game-planned to slow him down and were perfectly content with letting the rookie quarterback try to beat them.
